The traveller knows this, and sits and waits, camera ready....
We love sunset or sunrise photos! Here's several photos of the same scene taken at Didema Lodge, Drakensberg Mountains, South Africa, 2009 with my Canon SX10IS shooting at about 7MPS.
As the sun dropped we sat outside our lodge watching the colours change. I tried different settings to get different effects and the often cloud obscured sun gave varying results. Pic number 4 was shot on 'Nightscene" to bring out that sepia look.
And the final shot, the highlighted colours and deep shadows, was when the sun rose next morning. Colours had deepened dramatically.
